  • 1.  Same field label at multiple places on invoice

    Posted 11-20-2021 15:25
    Hi Team,

    During training one of the invoice, I'm facing the following issue.

    One of a field is present at 3 places and I want to capture the value of this field from a specific place only.

    In DFD I've added the header of this field.

    Hence Decipher picks value from the first occurrence of this field or capture value from the undesired place.

    I trained it a couple of times but don't see anything working.

    So how can we handle this type of scenario.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Hi Tejaskumar,

    Unfortunately I don't have enough information to give you a specific answer, however there are a few things you can try.

    - If the field is always in the same place of the document, you can use the misc parameter "StrictPosition=On". This is per layout and so the location can still vary between different suppliers/vendors/etc.
    - Sample headers should generally be unique (where possible), if this isn't possible you might want to try without this particular one being added to the DFD.
    - If the values can in any way be anticipated, you could try using validation lists. This will restrict the field to the values in the list.

    There might be other ways, but try these first. If they don't work, please provide more detail of the use case and I'll see what we can do.
